Pretty & Polished Haul + Swatches!

Hey y'all!  Today I'm going to show y'all the polishes that I bought from Pretty & Polished a few weeks ago!!!  I've been doing some research on indie brand polishes and decided that I was going to take the plunge and buy a few.  A few ended up being 12 in two days, yeah I kind of went a little crazy!

I started stalking researching Pretty & Polished since that was the brand that I saw a lot of fellow polish bloggers and addicts drooling over.  One time stalked her Etsy store during a sale just to see how fast her polishes go, and boy do they go fast!  I'm pretty sure all of her polishes went in about 10-15 minutes!  After I saw that sale I knew that if I wanted to have any chance to get her polishes I would have to be quick!

Chels announced another restock on her facebook page a couple weeks later and I began my preparation for combat shopping!  I opened three different pages and refreshed them like crazy about 10 minutes before the sale was live.  I ended up getting all of the polishes that I wanted and was amazed that my plan worked!!!  The shipping was lightning fast and I received my polishes in about 3 business days.

Now let's get on to the polish goodness shall we?!  Note: You might want to wear a bib or have napkins by you because these polishes will make you drool! ; )

I decided to play it safe and buy all minis!  From L to R: (Top) Jawbreaker, Sand Art, and Tart (Bottom) PHAT Camp and Candy Coated. 

The first I have to show y'all is Jawbreaker.  This is probably one of the most popular polishes from this brand! 

Jawbreaker is a white based polish filled with red, blue, purple, green, and yellow glitter in various shapes and sizes.

I applied two coats of Jawbreaker over one coat of Sally Hansen "White On" on my ring finger and three coats alone on my pinkie.

Next we have Sand Art!

Sand Art is a mix of small pink, purple, blue, and green matte glitters!  

The colors I used from top to bottom are: China Glaze "Gothic Lolita", China Glaze "For Audrey", and Sinful Colors "Summer Peach".  I applied two coats on each nail.

The next polish that I got is Tart.

Tart is a lavender base with a subtle blue shimmer with white, pink, blue, gold, and red multi-sized glitter throughout.  

I applied two coats over Sally Hansen's "Lacey Lilac" on my ring finger and three coats on its own on my pinkie.

The next polish I got is PHAT Camp! 

 Sorry for the blurry picture.  This polish is a clear base filled with purple, pink, and teal glitters in multiple sizes.

The colors I used are China Glaze "Senorita Bonita" and OPI "Fly".  I applied two coats of PHAT Camp.

Lastly, I got Candy Coated! 

Candy Coated is a sheer light pink polish with pink and purple multi-sized glitter. 

I used OPI "Lucky lucky lavender" as the base color then applied two coats of Candy Coated on my middle finger and three coats alone on my index finger.

I am sooooo happy with my purchase and I will definitely be buying more polishes from Pretty & Polished in the future!
